What you’ll do:

Working with our Engagement Editor, you’ll help measure and analyze our success, so we’re delighting our existing audiences while also building a larger community in a handful of settings, including the web, social media, email newsletters, video, live events, and podcasts.

You’ll also serve as our morning production gatekeeper, ensuring that content is clean and ready for the world.

What you’ll bring:

We’re looking for someone who’s obsessed with the news, who’s creative while possessing extreme attention to detail, and who loves the idea of spending a bunch of the day on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat, helping Recode break through the noise.

  • The ability to write clean copy and edit to Recode’s style guide.
  • Strong attention to detail.
  • Proven ability to work mostly independently, with support and input from editors and colleagues.

  • The ability to work from our New York office most days.
  • Some evening and weekend work, and some travel.

Bonus points for:

  • Experience in the tech industry, photography, graphic design, traffic analytics, and/or video creation.
